Set off on a jungle adventure like no other at Twycross Zoo, with over 150 different species including the four great apes. You’ll be swinging from the trees in no time!

Asian elephants, cheeky meerkats and Humboldt penguins are all waiting to meet you, so you’d better get busy! Creep below the treetop exhibit to visit the UK’s only group of Bonobos or see if you can spot your favourite colour fluttering by in the Butterfly Forest, all before trekking off for a spot of lunch overlooking the snow leopard enclosure. Phew! 

With the biggest collection of monkeys and apes in the Western World, as well as rare Amur leopards, conservation is at the heart of everything Twycross does. Kids can learn more about their mission with the Keeper for a Day programme or simply take it easy in a huge multi-tiered soft play area.

Great Zoo

Fantastic Zoo. My Nephew loved it. There is a bald Chimpanzee.

Great zoo - we love monkeys!

We had a fab day out here with our baby son. He absolutely LOVES monkeys and would have watched them all day if it was up to him. Great value for money and a really good ethical ethos.

Doesn’t get overcrowded

Such a good day out! One of the best things is how spread out things are, so even on the busiest days, it doesn’t feel overcrowded. Loads of animals and some pretty cool spaces for them too. The monkeys are always good to watch, and there’s loads of different types here. Decent amount of parking which is free, loads of picnic areas and some decent food and drink places around too. All in all, one of the best zoos we’ve been to in the UK.

Fantastic Zoo!

Love this place; try to visit every year. Great zoo with animals, and a really chilled vibe. Lots of picnic areas, and lots to do.

Used to go when I was little and now take my son

This is a great zoo - it's mainly monkeys but they have some other star residents /attractions including penguins, jaguar, meerkats, otters and many more including a pair of snow leopards! I was so excited to see them - best to get there early in the morning if you want to.They've also built a 'gibbon village' in recent years and - most amazing - a walk with lemurs experience where you actually go in with the lemurs. My nearly-two-year-old was laughing his head off at the monkeys. Loved it. I believe that some or all of the elephants are being moved this year but they still have giraffes. Be aware it's a huge zoo so lots of walking but lots to see. Giving it a high 4 stars.

Wrong location.

Twycross Zoo is in Leicestershire not Warwickshire. It does not have Warwickshire in its Royal Mail address.
